Ordered Poulton to make case for fontlet.
Thomas Aris’s wife of Burdrop and her mother in law wife of old Benjamin Aris came and asked for fresh coal tickets as they had lost theirs. I told them that if it turned out that through this carelessness some one else had taken their coals they would have to be the losers; the charity would not. I gave them new tickets quite with that understanding.
Ezra Hillman called to thank me for what I had done for him in sending him to Eastbourne and said that he had seen Lord Saye and Sele’s name in the list of governors of Brompton Hospital. I therefore wrote to him asking him if he could give me an in-patient’s letter and entrusted it to Hillmann to post.
Mr and Mrs Hitchcox and Mr and Mrs Woolgrove and Misses W and M Dix came to tea, etc.
The churchwardens and myself audited the accounts for the year ended easter last. A balance of £6.11 is due to Mr Woolgrove.
